Floral Vellum Ephemera - Pinkfresh and SB dot com Exclusive

 Good morning! Dropping by to share a card using some Pinkfresh Studio supplies - including the special new Ornate Floral Print stencil set that was is currently available exclusively at Scrapbook.com - and is available today as a free gift with any purchase for the next couple of days, or while supplies last!

For this card, I started off by creating a window for my florals using Ornate Circle die, cut from Ivory glitter cardstock. I mounted that with foam on my white cardbase, and then tucked those lovely vellum florals into the base, adhering with tiny dots of liquid glue. I added a sentiment over the bottom from Basic Banners: Celebrate, heat embossed in gold, then finished off with a few coordinating Clear Drops in Amber, Blush, and Sky Blue!

Sunny Days Ahead - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Stopping by today to share a birthday card I made for my daughter's 21st birthday this past weekend - as usual, I was working on it fairly last minute. We recently visited Disneyworld, and one of her favorite Disney movies is Tangled. I didn't have all the right things to make it more accurate, but I pulled out a fun set from Simon Says Stamp to create a sunny background, and I think it worked great!


I used the fun Hello Sunshine set to stamp out a sunny background. I used Zest ink to stamp the centers, and Honey to stamp the outline. I also added the overlaid tiny heart in Honey for a tone on tone soft effect. I trimmed the panel down, and ink blended around the edges a bit with Butter ink, then smooshed some more Honey on a clear block, picked up with a wet brush, and added a few splatters over the image. Finished off with a small sentiment from the same set, and the larger birthday sentiment from Birthday Basics stamp and die set - then, of course, a few sparkly glitter drops to embellish! Here are more photos of this card:

Modern Celebration Card - Pinkfresh Studio YouTube Live

 Good morning! I'm stopping by today to share a card I created earlier this week for a Pinkfresh Studio's YouTube Live. I used some of the newest releases, paired up with a few previously released items. I ended up with a very modern design, which I didn't expect when I started. But I thought it was really fun how it came out! You can watch the video replay HERE if you want to see more details and watch this card come together.


Here is the replay of the live video if you'd like to watch it here:


I ink blended these in some fun non-traditional colors, and love how they came out! I used the new Cheers press plate to hot foil in matte silver foil, then turned the citrus slices into limes for a fun different look. The frames were created with the new Decorative Frames press plate, pressed in crisp black ink. I found that much like multi stamping with a MISTI, I could multi press with the black for a deeper and darker impression as well. I used two colors of ink for an ombre blended effect on the main sentiment, and finished off with a few sparkly Iridescent clear drops after the live finished! Here are more photos of this finished card:

Lattice Cherry Blossoms - Pinkfresh Studio Instagram Release Hop

 Hello! Today I am part of a fun Instagram hop to celebrate the new Pinkfresh Studio "Happiness" Release. There are giveaways up for grabs, so hop on over to check that out if you haven't yet! I have had so much fun creating with this release - yesterday was the blog hop, and I shared a few cards for that! Today I'm sharing a a fun card I created on YouTube Live last week with Lea Lawson using similar sets but in slightly different ways! You can watch that video HERE if you want to see more details! 


Here is the replay of the live video if you'd like to watch it here:


I used a technique from the amazing Carissa Wiley to do letterpress on colored cardstock, tucking a piece of the cotton betterpress cardstock under the colored cardstock, so I was able to press the Beautiful Branch press plate in pink on pink cardstock for a tone on tone effect. SOOO fun! I then did the same thing to use normal cardstock for the Twist Pattern press plate. I also hot foiled the florals using the same press plate, and then ink blended in two tones for some interest and variation on the designs. I popped up the twist pattern with foam, then added the florals over the top, trimming off the edges, and tucking the leftover pieces in various places on the card front as well. Finished off with a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set, and a few tiny Clear Drops: Ice on some of the flower centers! Here are more photos of this finished card:

Pinkfresh Studio “Delightful” Release Blog Hop

Good morning! Today is the blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's "Delightful" Release! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY! Click HERE to shop the new release!  


There is also a FABULOUS freebie available while supplies last with this release - the Peony Fantasy hot foil plate with any $50 purchase:


I have 3 cards to share with you today using this fabulous new release!


First up - I love both the new sets used on this card. The Cheers set is a SUPER fun set that I just love - all that fruit is so sweet! And then the Decorative Frames press plate is amazing, and so versatile. I mixed and matched the different frames on this card, all hot foiled with Satin Gold foil. It framed up that sweet drink so well in it's soft colors! Here are some photos of this first card:






Next up - those frames in action again, but with a different set!


For this one, the frames were done as a press plate instead of foiling. I used a variety of tones of ink for a multicolor ink, using ink cubes to dab color on in different places and letting them overlap and blend a bit. I popped up one frame from the reverse foiling with the solid foil plate of the leftover foil from the last card, then added florals from the new Be Fearless set, hot foiled and stenciled of course. Here are more photos of this card:






And finally - I love an elegant letterpress card!


I love the detail in the Beautiful Branch set, and thought it would be lovely to focus on that with the Betterpress. I used some coordinating inks for another multicolor effect, and pressed it two times, once at the top, and once on the bottom. I added another one of those reverse frames, and a sentiment stamped in nice crisp black. Here are more photos of this final card:
